Carolina Hurricanes 3-4 Boston Bruins

The Hurricanes and the Bruins kicked off their series later than expected, playing their Game 1 on Wednesday after their Tuesday contest got delayed. The game was worth the wait, however, as Boston clinched a 4-3 win but netted the winning goal in the second OT thanks to Patrice Bergeron, who found the back of the net from a tight angle after an excellent pass from David Pastrnak. Bergeron, Pastrnak, and Brad Marchand all finished with two points for the Bruins, while Tuukka Rask made 25 saves. Sebastian Aho didn’t score for Carolina, but he set up a goal and extended his playoff point streak to four games.

Everyone loves an overtime thriller and luckily we will get to see these two teams go at it again tomorrow. Check out BetQL to find the best NHL odds, lines, spreads, and picks for all of this year’s playoffs

New York Islanders 4-2 Washington Capitals

The Islanders kicked off their first-round series against the Capitals on a strong note, coming back from a two-goal deficit to top the Capitals by a 4-2 score in Game 1. Washington led 2-0 until late in the second period, but Jordan Eberle made it a one-goal game with 1:03 left in the second period. The Islanders offense would wake up in the final 20 minutes of action, though, and goals from Anders Lee, Josh Bailey, and Anthony Beauvilier flipped the script for the Islanders. Brock Nelson and Mathew Barzal each had two assists for the Islanders, while T.J. Oshie (two goals) and John Carlson (two assists) stood out for the Caps.

Arizona Coyotes 0-3 Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche were huge favorites for Game 1 of their opening series against the Coyotes, and they responded to that tag by shutting out Arizona en route to a comfortable 3-0 win. Colorado had to wait until the third period to break the deadlock, however, as the Coyotes controlled them the best they could in the first 40 minutes of play. Nazem Kadri scored the first goal midway through the third period, however, and the team would close things out with goals from T.J. Compher and Mikko Rantanen. Nathan MacKinnon didn’t score but still contributed with two assists.
